Taste of Labour by Tornos

Taste of Labour (Culinary Experience)

– by appointment

After a day’s hard work and toiling all day it is a humble cuisine that labourers cook for themselves every evening with limited means at their disposal but with great heart and full soul.

We at Tornos have learnt to appreciate this unique cuisine that we call, ‘Taste of Labour’, very basic but a hearty meal that tastes quite different due to labour being one of its ingredients. We will take you to a construction site to experience the dinner preparation just after the day’s labour. Learn step by step cooking, from lighting the fire to plating the meal. Each step is unbelievable, style of lighting fire, pounding of garlic with the back of a steel glass, or for that matter bread being rolled with a rolling pin all are so unique to labourers’ cuisine.

Believe us, there is absolutely no parallel in the style of cooking and the taste of food cooked by the labourers on the roadside at the construction sites or their makeshift abode on the streets.
